FASTBOOK service

Stanford University Libraries' FASTBOOK service, which provides on-campus delivery of books and photocopies to faculty, graduate students and academic staff, will be eliminated effective Sept. 1.

The last day to submit requests will be Aug. 16, according to Jim Cruse, assistant chief of access services at Green Library. The elimination of the service was a result of "repositioning," he said.

The cutback will not affect document delivery services available through the Stanford/University of California-Berkeley Research Library Cooperative Program. Faculty, graduate students and academic staff will continue to be able to request delivery of library materials from the collections of the University of California-Berkeley. To use this service, Cruse said, eligible individuals should secure a Coop Program Card from the Privileges Department in the Green Library lobby.

In addition, there will be no changes made in the Interlibrary Borrowing Service, which secures materials unavailable in Stanford University Libraries from other libraries nationwide.
